Go Texan Day: We want to see your office's getups

When I was a little girl, I knew when it was rodeo season ? not because I was patiently awaiting the deep-fried everything and playing with goats at the petting zoo, which I definitely was ? but because on the Friday before the rodeo rolled out, I was dressed Texan to a T. I'd have tiny cowboy boots with a matching hat and a bandana around my neck; and a few years, my mom handmade my Western wear. While I might not still have her as my personal clothier, she instilled the tradition in me just?

How to grow your communication skills

Human communication is complex, but the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ?communication? is often spoken or written words. However, the words we speak and hear are just one way we communicate, and some studies show that most of our communication takes place through other means. Humans communicate in many different ways, such as verbal, nonverbal, body language and artistic communication, which is through images or music. The way we communicate with people affects all aspects?

Gibbons made simple, obvious stage banter that seemed to delight fans. The '80s hit energized the entire stadium and was followed by a grimy "Legs," another MTV staple.

[...] a worker handed over a sample cup of steaming gumbo to an eager customer at his food stand, All of Us Old Plantation Soups & Dips. In the shopping market inside NRG Center, where you could buy saltwater taffy, cowboy boots or a mattress, a young boy asked his father incredulously, "300 bucks?!" about the price of a brown stuffed pony for sale. A dad patted the back of his daughter's pink jacket as she vomited red onto the sidewalk in the middle of the carnival grounds.

Houston-area family fights father's deportation

Earlier this month, Gerardo Martinez-Morales, a 52-year-old printer and father of four, was driving to a doctor's appointment in Galveston when he was pulled over by an island police officer because of a broken tail light. Martinez-Morales is one of at least six similar cases that have come to the attention of a local immigrant rights advocacy organization since President Donald Trump ordered stepped-up enforcement of immigration laws aimed at deporting people in the country illegally. At a news conference Friday with members of Martinez-Morales' family, Cesar Espinosa, executive director of FIEL Houston, said people living in the U.S. illegally and with no criminal records are increasingly being detained and deported. Martinez-Morales' case follows the high-profile detention late last month and subsequent deportation of Jose Escobar, a 31-year-old father of two American children with an American wife, to El Salvador, a country he hadn't seen since coming to the United States as a teenager 16 years ago. Escobar, who had a previous deportation order against him but who had been granted temporary permission to live and work in the U.S., was detained during a required routine status check-in with immigration officials. Under the new policies being enforced by the Trump administration, immigration agents are required to deport anyone convicted of a criminal offense, including those driving without a license, a growing obstacle for more than half a million immigrants in the region who can't get a license because of their illegal immigration status.

Authorities: Man who died in police crash in Katy had heroin in car

Match Day 2017: Hospitals disclose medical residency destinations

William and Niki Jackson met just a month into medical school during a party at a Midtown wine bar after the first set of exams. Around 11 a.m., the Jacksons were among hundreds of relatives assembled on a tree-shaded quad behind the school, which is part of the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. School officials brought out the proverbial golden tickets, 220 or so overlapping envelopes arrayed like slices of cheese on a deli platter. Spouses and partners held their breath, wondering if they would have to uproot themselves and build a new life by July, when residency programs begin. For eight pairs of medical students like the Jacksons, the question was not whether they would wind up together, but where they would be sent together. At the ceremony, class officers called up each student, one by one, to pick up their envelopes. Following a tradition, each student dropped a dollar bill in a bucket that would go to the last student called, to compensate him or her for the long wait. The couple married last April in a wedding they scarcely got to help to plan beyond Niki picking out her dress. A few minutes later, William brought back his own envelope with its gold seal, and he showed it off to his sister like a lottery ticket that he knew was a winner.
